Description Caius Chance 2007-08-22 02:07:32 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #253161 +++

Description of problem:
fonts-chinese contains a number of different fonts, they should be
moved to packages that reflect the upstream project's name as far
as possible: eg to arphic-fonts and taipei-fonts.

-- Additional comment from cchance@redhat.com on 2007-08-19 07:58 EST --
Excuse me to ask, how could this proposal conserve the current convenience for
user to install formal chinese fonts when it is carried out?

-- Additional comment from petersen@redhat.com on 2007-08-19 20:42 EST --
fonts-chinese will require the new fonts packages.

Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-08-22 05:36:23 UTC
Add license file in tarball.
Change License tag to one of compatible licenses allowed.
add postun section
Change buildroot
why Obsolete needed?
Is taipeifonts package present in fedora currently?

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2007-08-29 01:00:13 UTC
It seems taipei-1.2.tar.gz seems to originate from the CLE
(Chinese Linux Extension) to Slackware from bitmaps taken from XFree86 perhaps.

Anyway I managed to track down a potential new upstream since taipei16
and taipei24 are included in GNU's intlfonts distribution.


The current version is 1.2.1.

lists the distribution as GPLv2+, verified by the FSF in 2001.
There is no COPYING or license file included in the tarball(s) though.
It would be good to ask Handa-san for clarification about that perhaps.

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2007-08-29 01:24:57 UTC
So probably the Chinese.tar.gz in
is a good candidate to replace taipeifonts.

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2007-08-29 01:39:51 UTC
Oh and I just found:


which claims the taipei fonts are Public Domain.

The taipei fonts are available here:

Comment 7 Parag AN(पराग) 2007-09-07 08:31:16 UTC
I think Jens can be good Reviewer for this package. 
Removing myself from review.

Comment 8 Warren Togami 2007-09-19 23:01:25 UTC
bump: reminding Jens =)

Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2007-09-20 03:33:14 UTC
Thanks - Caius should be back next week from holiday.

Comment 10 Jens Petersen 2007-09-25 02:36:19 UTC
I suggest let's rename it to taipeifonts if that is the upstream name.

 taipeifonts.src: W: no-url-tag

Is there URL for this?

 taipeifonts.noarch: W: no-documentation
 taipeifonts.noarch: W: no-url-tag

Any documentation files available?

intlfonts-1.2.1/Korean.X/README reads:

Koean Hangle&Hanja (KSC5601):
	hanglg16.bdf	from X.V11R5/mit/bdf/fonts/misc
	hanglm16.bdf	...
	hanglm24.bdf	...

cleanup patch

Comment 13 Jens Petersen 2007-09-25 06:47:47 UTC
How about a url for the source?

Comment 14 Jens Petersen 2007-09-25 06:51:46 UTC
(BTW I can't reach ftp://cle.linux.org.tw/pub2/fonts/bitmap/taipeifont currently.)

Comment 17 Jens Petersen 2007-09-25 07:16:54 UTC
Review follows:

+ rpmlint clean
+ name follows upstream name (from CLE project)
+ meets packaging guidelines
+ fonts are public domain (no license file is included)
+ spec file is clear
+ dir and file ownership is good
+ macros used

Needs attention:
- no source url
- noarch package builds
- buildreqs listed

Dunno if it is not a good idea to include say

Comment 18 Jens Petersen 2007-09-25 08:19:03 UTC
correction "- noarch package builds" should have been in the "Good" section.

Comment 20 Jens Petersen 2007-09-26 08:27:59 UTC
ugh, sorry, "buildreqs listed" should also have been under Good.

Comment 21 Jens Petersen 2007-09-26 08:48:14 UTC
How about
for the source url?

Do you have a better one?

Also I just noticed the "Buildroot" should updated to the current recommendations:

Comment 23 Jens Petersen 2007-09-28 02:16:01 UTC
URL field is for the project webpage not the source.
So we want one url for URL and one for SOURCE.

How about:

URL:  http://cle.linux.org.tw/

Though they don't mention taipeifonts on the website directly anymore
I think it is respectful to acknowledge the work of CLE here.


using %{name}-%{version}.tar.gz is better since it shows that the name and
version follows upstream.



Comment 24 Jens Petersen 2007-09-28 02:18:20 UTC
Created attachment 209341 [details]

Here is a patch with a better base url.

Comment 27 Jens Petersen 2007-09-28 04:58:04 UTC
taipeifonts.noarch: W: incoherent-version-in-changelog 1.2-4 1.2-3.fc7

Please bump the release.

Also please preserve the timestamp of the readme file in %prep with "cp -p".

Comment 29 Jens Petersen 2007-09-28 07:19:05 UTC
For the record here is the md5sum of the source tarball:

9e4acdd5a218dea6aaa28bc80d472aad  taipeifonts-1.2.tar.gz

which coincides with the one from CLE.

Thanks for the review.

This package is APPROVED.
